The sun shone on the hill last Friday as Karen McKevitt MLA for South Down launched the 2012 Norbrook Pointer Project at the Northern Ireland Assembly.

Speaking at the event McKevitt said: “I am delighted to launch Norbrook Pointer Project, a community led youth project involving the PSNI Neighbourhood Policing Team and community groups from Newry and Mourne. The initiative began two years ago and instantly attracted the imagination of the private, public and voluntary sector who joined together to support and promote the project.

“As we all know youth clubs are the heart of every community and it is great to the Neighbourhood Policing Team engaging with our young people through these organisations. The interest in joining the project continues to increase as other young people learn of the experiences and opportunities available to those involved with Norbrook Pointer. This is exactly the type of project that I want to endorse. ”

She added, “I believe the fact that Chief Constable Matt Bagott and Justice Minister David Ford took time from their busy schedules to attend the launch speaks volumes.”

Superintendent Sam Cordner said, “We are delighted to be launching the 2012 Norbrook Pointer project and can pay testament to the work these groups are doing with young people to ensure they do not get caught up in crime or anti-social behaviour.”
